Summary: I don't understand the mania around these games. Arkham Asylum was a decent game, but it was still tedious and boring at times. This game is similar, but with more tediousness and a lot more boring city to explore! The goons are stupid and the quests are either too easy or too difficult. I tried it for at least 6-7 hours and then just sold it.
Summary: I honestly dont know why everyone is craving for this game. Its not that good! The story line is great but sometimes it feels like its never going to end and sometimes it feels like its impossible to beat! I dont like the whole "riddler question" things because that just confuses you in story mode. Overall, I did not like this game.
Summary: This game was awesome until I got to one part in the new game plus mode where you have to fight like 15 thugs at once while trying to leave the subway. During this fight, blocking/countering almost never works properly, some strikes that should land don't land, and they just plain cheat you out of having anymore fun with this game. A word to the wise: Don't bother with new game plus mode. You may end up throwing it in the trash if you do, lol.
Far too overrated and problem filled to be truly fun

Summary: I got this game for Christmas due to being a huge fan of games and the videos on youtube seemed like it was a fun game, sadly it's not fun or enjoyable to me. That is not to say that they didn't spend a lot of time on a good story, great voice acting, a lot of detailed computer work, but the problem with this game is it is so frustrating to play.

Summary: The best way I can sum up how I feel about this game: About a month and a half ago, my room mate and I paid full retail price for this game. Since we are poor white trash, this is not something that happens often, but with the buzz surrounding this game, we felt justified in this purchase. Fast forward to tonight. We decided to trade in Arkham City at Play and Trade for a whopping 12.95, even though we paid 59.99.
Summary: I, personally do not like this game that much more than Batman: Arkham Asylum. * Yes it has better graphics plus new maneuvers and abilities. * The game is not much different from Arkham Asylum. * You need to buy Cat Woman and Robin in $$$'s I think it is a waste of time and money. If you are going to buy this game new at Amazon or wherever; buy Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 or Assassins Creed: Revelations. You've probably never thought of this one! SAVE $59.99!!!
Summary: As far as sequels goes, this is one of the best available. There is so much to do and see in Arkham City, you'll be playing for weeks and weeks. However, unless you're willing to pay much more than the $60 (or $40 as of this writing) it costs to get the disc, you won't be getting everything you can out of Arkham City. The reason why this game gets such a low score from such a huge fan is because the developers have essentially sold out.
